Aired 1957, here's three commercials for the ill-fated Edsel car (1958 model year?), which despite some innovative features ended up being a major commercial failure.

Then again, "Clutch Cargo" was already crap by the standards of it's time). Heck, it stinks by the standards of most advertising cartoons of the time...
